    Default Rough Tough Kennel

    Anyone in the market for a new portable kennel should look at the Rough Tough Kennels. I just bought one and 3 days later my wife got hit while toting the pup around. The kennel was the only thing in the back that didn't get messed up, and it kept my boy safe, not a scratch.

    They are a great kennel and they can take a pounding. I have some the ride in the box of my Polaris Ranger. I drive across plowed fields and etc. I really like the roto moulded design.

    I am thankful that I haven't had to crash-test mine yet, but I like them and so do the dogs.

    They do get a bit warm in the heat if there is no breeze. They do make a fan for it, and you can drill additonal holes. As for the winter you can use standard kennel covers, my mudd river fits great.

    I ordered mine with doors in both ends, so the ventilation is good. And, I can see through the kennels out my rear window when backing up, LOL. The dogs enjoy looking at me, too. Since mine are under an ARE shell, don't need to worry much about the temps, the dogs' body heat seems to be enough most of the time. They sleep inside with us when we're traveling.
